Remember how Earl creator Greg Garcia left our beloved karmic list-maker in jail? Well, Garcia says, for season 3 ”we’re going to keep him in prison for a while…and Michael Rapaport will appear for at least four episodes as a fellow prisoner.” Jason Lee’s Earl will ”take a creative-writing class in prison, and all our characters get bitten by the creative-writing bug. We go into their imaginations and see the worlds they create for themselves…. We’ll also find out why Crab Man [Eddie Steeples] is in witness protection. And, of course, Jaime Pressly’s Joy will have her baby.” Anything else? ”There’s a chance Catalina [Nadine Velazquez] may question her sexuality this year. That’s enticing to readers, right?” Readers, can we get a big ”Hell, yeah!”?
